Board of Education

Bof EdB,D,A 7-64

One day three little girls were playing in their room

apparently becoming a bit rambunctious

Daddy, who had recently graduated from college

had recieved a paddle

something known as a “Board of Education”

it hung on a wall

Daddy warned these little girls a few times

they paid him no mind

exasperated, he told them he was going to paddle their behinds

still no attention

Daddy came back into the bedroom with the smooth wooden thing

the girls eyes got big

he told all three of them to turn around

this was a new development

never had they felt a paddle on their bums

three little girls waiting

waiting

and waiting

til they heard the click of the door handle

as he disappeared down the hall
